here’s some new characters and a new drawing in progress


a widower and his daughters are having dinner and a housekeeper brings a dessert they all hate but are to polite to admit it

the food might be good and if i am lucky not very unhealthy but somehow still i want it to be my own decision.

volf bulba workshop 2013

i took yet another illustration workshop with this painter.  we’ve learned some of his preferable illustration technics. i played a little with watercolors for the first time in may be 15-16 years…    in this little study i’ve combined watercolors with printed cutouts (the petals).  u basically smudge some gouache on to a plastic/nylon sheet and then press a piece of chromo paper (very smooth paper that doesn’t absorb paint) on to it, when u separate the sheets u get interesting patterns on the paper. u let it dry and then cut out the shape u need for your illustration (a leaf, a flower, an animal, ect.) and glue it on your painting  (i think i’ve explained it horribly but you can see it all on this painting if you watch closely)
